President Barack Obama has announced today the plans for a "leaner" US military. Thousands of troops are expected to be cut from duty. I just wanted to know if anyone's is also worried about how the Academies will stand. Rumors have also been floating around (especially after the King's Point situation) that the Service Academies will be affected. I just wanted to ask if anyone senses a drop in acceptance rates over the next few years (esp. Class of 2016, 2017, 2018, as they are quickly approaching) and a tightening of admission standards. Thanks and I hope I can stir up an educational debate!
